Cincinnati, OH – August 2020– Super Optical has expanded its program offering free lenses to medical workers and first responders to include essential workers and anyone in need due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During the shutdown in March, Super Optical began this program by offering free lenses to practices that wanted to help support the health and safety of our frontline workers. “While we continue to support these heroes, we now realize that we must step up and aid all of those affected by this virus,” said Hugh McManus, Manager of Operations at Super Optical. “If you’re dispensing lenses produced on the FastGrind in-office surfacing system to a patient that is in need due to COVID-19, please contact us to find out how to be fully reimbursed for those lenses.”
The FastGrind system has been an invaluable asset to many practices during this uncertain time. When faced with lab shutdowns and shipping delays, being able to produce lenses in-office meant patients could get the essential services and glasses they needed without delay. Thanks to its unique position in the market, Super Optical saw growth amid the uncertainty of COVID-19 closures, allowing for the expansion of the free lens program. Super Optical is looking forward to the program reaching new regions around the world following the onboarding of new practices over the last few months. With many regions still facing shutdowns and unemployment, Super Optical feels it is essential to give back to those who may be struggling to afford glasses in the current situation.
